ST. JOHN’S - The Alpha Group of Pharmacies announced a donation of $5,000 to support immediate humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. On March 11th, Robert Doyle, President of The Alpha Group (pictured left) provided a cheque to Reid Eyre, Emergency Management Coordinator at Canadian Red Cross NL (pictured right) at their Major’s Path office for the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.
Mr. Doyle is a pharmacist and pharmacy owner in St. John’s, who like many of his colleagues, watched the war and aggression against Ukraine unfold before the world. He stated, “As we see pharmacies in Ukraine remain open to provide essential medications and services to their community, our pharmacy community here at home wants to show support for Ukrainians and our pharmacy colleagues who continue to operate pharmacies in these traumatic times.” The donation by The Alpha Group of Pharmacies was made possible through the support of our pharmacy owners who are members of the Group.
